Digital Fashion: Waiting For Vogue ...
Feb 12 2013
Anna Wintour is reportedly a stickler for punctuality. The infamously impatient editor-in-chief of American Vogue runs a tight ship and expects everyone around her to be on time (a character trait I admire and relate to by the way). She's even known for being routinely early to fashion shows and is frequently the first editor to arrive. I raise this only because it makes the perpetually slow upload of images from the New York shows to the Vogue site all the more perplexing.
If an upstart like Paris-based Now Fashion can manage to upload show images to their site almost before the last model has left the runway, why can't Conde Nast's flagship fashion publication and industry leader at least keep up with the shows of the day? The sloth-like pace of Vogue's digital team is all the more glaring this week in that they're actually on their own turf and therefore don't have the time difference with London, Paris and Milan to contend with. Vogue is letting a mere upstart eat its lunch. What gives?
